The NZSAR Council has released its strategic plan for 2014-16. The Council took the opportunity to revise and update its goals for the SAR sector. The four goals are:
- A robust and integrated SAR system
- Efficient and sustainable SAR organisations
- Capable SAR people
- Reduced demand for SAR services
The plan is available here.
The NZSAR Council has recently received an independent report on Integrated SAR Management Training Pathways. It is available here.
